“I can't say enough good things about LeanKit. [Once I grasped the UI], I saw the power of being able to visually represent what I wanted to with the tool.”

- Kelly Hair, Router Lab

“The ability to deploy on-site (when security needs require it) or host in the cloud and get the same feature set makes this solution appealing to a wide audience. The application is mature and feature-rich, encompassing all aspects of defect tracking. [It] integrates with many other solutions.”

- Rusty Wilson, Zenoss Inc.

Most negative review: Most negative review:

“It sends you a ridiculous number of emails. Every little change made to a task or board is emailed to you—even if you did it.”

- Katie Mitchell, Clickback Inc.

“It’s expensive—not terribly expensive, but it’s not a budget software. Because of this, it’s mostly a professional-grade tool used by businesses, so you’ll never get the ‘open source’ environment building and adding on to their platform.”

- Mitch Moody, Anyone Home Inc.

Most negative review: Most negative review:

“Even though there are lots of integrations available, it seems there's still [a] way to go. Inherent scrum supporting tools like burndown charts are not intuitive to use.”

- Eitan Burcat, LiveU

“The user interface can be cluttered and hard to scan. Content is not broken up well enough. All the elements for use are there, but the flow of the site isn’t fluid.”

- Jelyn Frye, Tonic Design Co.
